Anthony brought his date Justin to a Jewish dinner at the York-Goldenblatt’s house in the latest episode to drop on Thursday.
But upon entering the property, Justin remarked: ‘Is this a Jewish dinner? You know the Holocaust is a hoax, right?’
Anthony immediately told him to ‘get out’ whilst Harry (Evan Handler) – who is Jewish – looked on in shock.
Fans’ jaws were dropping over the moment being included in the episode, especially with the timing of the release date.
‘The Holocaust moment. I’m speechless. Did they have to include that? #AndJustLikeThat,’ asked a viewer.
Another fan added: ‘The Holocaust comment. On premier date for Europe: The 27th of January. Yeah, not great in my opinion, however, I’m not trying to be petty.’
Some else said: ‘My jaw dropped at Anthony’s date making the Holocaust comment. Came out of nowhere. It just…was not funny at all. #andjustlikethat.’
‘Know your f**king audience… A joke about the holocaust on the official memorial day….are you f**king kidding me! #HolocaustRemembranceDay,’ agreed another.
However, some praised Anthony’s handling of the comment, after he swiftly kicked his date out of the dinner like a king.
‘#AndJustLikeThat – How to handle Holocaust deniers. Anthony = awesome,’ said one
Another wrote: ‘Anthony’s reaction to his date’s holocaust comment is the best thing. Love him even more #AndJustLikeThat.’
Holocaust Memorial Day is a day dedicated to the memory of those whose lives have been lost over the years to genocide.
The date of January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, 77 years ago.
